  • Goedhuis, December 2017

    The dark fruits of this superbly positioned premier cru are wrapped in savoury oak tones. It is typically masculine in structure, with sculpted tannic intensity. The palate has some chalky freshness and the finish is long and flavoursome.

  • Burghound, April 2019, Score: 89

    A brooding but not particularly fresh nose displays mostly dark berry and poached plum nose with background notes of earth and game. There is slightly better verve and freshness to the attractively textured and muscular medium weight flavors that display noticeable warmth on the moderately structured finish that is enough to detract from the overall sense of balance. This is somewhat one-dimensional at present and while more depth will undoubtedly develop, this is a bit clumsy at present and it's an open question as to whether it will eventually better harmonize.

Son of the family who used to own the illustrious Domaine de la Pousse d’Or, Nicolas Potel set up his négociant label Maison Roche de Bellene in 2008. A Bourguignon through and through, Nicolas’ unrivalled local network of thoroughly reliable grower-suppliers allows him to source fruit from the most sought-after parcels in the Côte. He also produces a selection of domaine wines (under Domaine de Bellene). The emphasis remains to this day on well-sited venerable vines and viticulture and the Maison Roche de Bellene label is the superlative source of attractive, well-priced Burgundy wines. Nicolas chose the name ‘Bellene' in honour of the ancient Roman name for Beaune.Read less

Region

Nuits Saint Georges

The second largest town after Beaune, Nuits St. Georges is known for ample wines that have textured tannins and rich fruit. Unlike other famous Côte de Nuits villages, it has no Grand Crus but does have a handful of exceptional premier cru vineyards such as Clos de l'Arlot, Les Pruliers and AuxMurgers. Its wines can be occasionally rustic, and this sets them apart from many of the more northern appellations as well as from the neighbouring Côte de Beaune whose wines (apart from Pommard) tend to be less structured and more fruit forward. This is no doubt due to a slightly increased presence of clay especially on the Primeaux-Prissey area of the appellation. Notable producers include Domaine de l'Arlot, Jean Grivot and Meo-Camuzet.
